it's a great pleasure for us that eg (experimental graphics magazine), a publication of the society for environmental graphic design (segd), reports on our project adidas »laces« in their latest issue.
per mollerup is an acknowledged expert when it comes to signage systems. we appreciate his books and have them in our library. the latest, recently published one »wayshowing>wayfinding« is a collection of exemplary work from all over the world. we are glad to be featured with three projects!

you might think, that the interest in well done architecture is accompanied by well done typography. after all, it is not always like this.
therefore we are glad about architects, who see a correlation between built and typographic detail and furthermore feel an enrichment to their buildings by graphic design.
lecture by andreas uebele at the »zentralvereinigung der architekten österreichs«, national association vorarlberg, 5. december 2013, bregenz.
aed, dea, ade
the capriciousness, which is conceded to the artist – or even expected –, allows a play with the three letters. it is a nice coincidence that happen by the variation of the acronym »aed«: dea for example is the short term of drug enforcement administration, or – even better! – of »das elektronische archiv« (the electronic archive), a private archive to support class consciousness, or, just up to date, it stands for »data encryption algorithm«, which means a not cryptical symmetric encryption algorithm.
of course, all this has a relation to the here advertised event, where the three best looking graphic designers of hesse and württemberg talk about the relation between art and design. the designer is prohibited from doing the nice letter play. he has to set them nice.
how, you can see and hear at the series of talks by the aed at the kunsterverein stuttgart, 20th of november 2013, 7–9 pm.
about »art versus design« talk martin grothmaak, peter zizka and andreas uebele, moderated by prof. dr. klaus klempp, exhibition manager at the museum of applied arts frankfurt.

a readers delight
the book »read/ability« by jan filek analyses examinations concerning legibility and readability. these terms are often used by graphologists, graphic designers and typographers, mostly clueless. this – of course – well readable book originated in a diploma thesis at the university of applied sciences düsseldorf, faculty of design, that was supervised by andreas uebele.

bazon brock speaks
the title of his lecture: »creating problems, makes the master. to critizise the truth, has the humanist. errors are excuses for laymen.« is so enormous that we split it into three manageable pieces. now one poster by itself is totally unreadable; a nice typographic ruin, that encourages the content of the lecture, the thinking.
and nothing else.
typographic black and white posters are the collector´s passion of boris brumnjak. true to the motto: »the collection includes just what i like. and nothing else.« 100 posters of his collection are now exhibited in the kunsthalle luzern, four of them are done by our studio.
